Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Worst Concert You've Been To?

Oh, I thought of another terrible concert. It was the most recent incarnation of The Dead at the Times Union Center in Albany, NY. I guess it must have been 2007 or 2008?..I think 2008. The show was ridiculously boring. The first set was just ok but I went into the break hoping for the best from the second set. A couple songs and then into about 20 minutes of Space...and not even interesting Space...more like, I think I'm going to take a nap, wake me when it's over space. By the time the came out of it I had given up. I walked out extremely annoyed I paid 65 bucks for the ticket.

I walked down the street to grab a beer and ended up seeing a bar band that was way more fun for $5.

Memory is an amazing thing.Another nightmare show I heard of but wasn't there was The Who at the Cow Palace. I believe this was around 69-70 Keith was so out of it that he fell off his kit and it was pretty obvious he wasn't going to continue.To try to salvage the show Pete asked if there was a drummer in the house," ours is very sick" and a dude came on-stage and they played a bunch of Chuck Berry tunes and clearly made that guys day. Probably the next list should be the top 10 best ever concerts
